My Predictions for the Oscars
So I know the Oscars are coming on tomorrow on Sunday March 7, 2010 and most of the time I don’t miss them. I love to watch the glitz and glamour of the whole thing. I like to see who is wearing what or what is wearing who, whichever you want to look at it. But at any rate I can pretty much always guess who is going to win, who is going to win even if they shouldn’t, and who is not going to win at all. Most of the time I am right but this year they have added more movies to best picture, making it a little more difficult for me, but nonetheless I am still going to predict a couple of categories here.
Now the only categories that I really care about are Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Director. Everything else is pretty much boring and like they say being second best (as in supporting roles) just means you get to lose first, or something like that, and I say this because to me supporting actress or actor is kind of a rip off because sometimes they do a better job then the best actress, which is unfair to me, but what can you do, so therefore to me they are a bore and the thing I hate about the Oscars is that it drags on forever before getting to those categories that everyone no doubt is waiting for.
So first let me give you the categories of pictures that are nominated:
Avatar (of course but I didn’t particularly like it)
The Blind Side (I absolutely loved it)
District 9 (Don’t know how this even got in here it was a piece of trash IMHO)Yes I did see it!
The Hurt Locker
Inglorious Bastards (Not a fan of Tarantino, I’m a girl)
Precious (Amazing Movie)
A Serious Man
Up in the Air
James Cameron (Avatar)
Quentin Tarantino (UGHH, Inglorious Bastards)
Katherin Bigelow (The Hurt Locker)
Jason Reitman (Up in the Air)
Lee Daniels (Precious)
The Winners Are: IMHO
1. The Blind Side For Best Picture
2. Sandra Bullock for Best Actress:
Although I love love love Meryl Streep I know that either Sandra Bullock will get this as usually the best picture and best actress goes together, although Gabourey Sidibe did such an amazing job in Precious that this movie and actress maybe the dark horse in these awards
3. Best Director James Cameron
I say James Cameron because even though I do not think that Avatar even comes close to the story lines in The Blind Side and Precious, I still think that he will get the award. because of who he is and because of the special effects in the movie (which really didn’t impress me that much, I so couldn’t wait for a bathroom break) and so I conclude that James Cameron will probably come out as "King of the world again", for best director and only best director. Now I may be wrong on this since I am not a psychic and I am only giving my humble opinion but those are my predictions and we will see how it goes.
So once again.
1. The Blind Side (Best Picture)
2. Sandra Bullock (Best Actress)
3. James Cameron (Best Director)
